The Secret
One day, one friend asked another,
"How is it that you are always so happy?
You have so much energy,
and you never seem to get down."
With her eyes smiling, she said,
"I know the Secret!"
"What secret is that?"
To which she replied,
"I'll tell you all about it,
but you have to promise to
share the Secret with others."
"The Secret is this:
I have learned there is little I can do
in my life that will make me truly happy.
I must depend on God to make
me happy and to meet my needs.
When a need arises in my life,
I have to trust God to supply
according to HIS riches.
I have learned most of the time
I don't need half of what I think I do.
Since I learned that 'Secret', I am happy."
We can't depend on people to make us happy.
Only GOD in His infinite wisdom can do that.
Trust HIM!
He has never let me down.
And now I pass the Secret on to you!

I decided I needed to buy myself a Christmas present this year.....and since I know what it is, no need to wrap it and wait for Christmas to play with it.
I have bought it several accessories, I did not want it to be lonely. I have about 7 cartridges for it so far, and some extra cutting mats, and blades.
Then of course I need paper so I have something to play with. The week between Christmas and New Year's I plan to play with my new toy.
I have played some already, as I made name tags for all the Christmas presents with it so far.
Wow where has the time seems like just yesterday I was getting ready for thanksgiving, and here it is less than a week till Christmas!
At least I think I am ready, have all the presents wrapped, all the decorations up, only have one more kind of cookie to bake, all the cards are out except 3, have to locate addresses..
Tomorrow, will do that last batch of cookies and clean the house for Christmas, write up the Christmas dinner menu, and see what I can make ahead.
If everything works out...I will have Wednesday and Thursday to just chill out and relax....will see how that works out.
